How about a nice hot scone?

So, I'm considering giving Fossil
(http://www.fossil-scm.org/index.html/doc/trunk/www/index.wiki) a shot
for a project I'm working on.  Not full-time, mind you, but I enjoy a
good excuse to try out a new tool.  If you've not heard of it, Fossil
is a distributed revision control system (ala Git, and in fact it's
Git compatible), as well as a distributed bug tracker, wiki, and blog
engine.  The idea is that someone sets up a Fossil server someplace
for a project and everyone checks code out of and into it.  At the
same time, notes, updates, and bug tickets are checked out of and into
the server.  Whenever devs update their local repositories, they
actually update their local cache of, well, all of the collaboration

Has anyone used it before?  What do you think of it?  How stable is
it?  Is it even worth giving a try when more mature tools (like what
Github offers) are out there?
